Only as soon as the camera angle changes, Skywarp is suddenly colored like Thundercracker, and then moments later screams in Starscream's voice. *Prowl is colored with Bluestreak's color scheme throughout the episode. *In one scene, Megatron has a RED Decepticon symble. ===Continuity errors=== * Many of the characters seem to act OUT of character in this episode. Megatron's never seemed like the caring kind before when it comes to his Decepticons, Scavenger acts true to his tech spec, and Optimus Prime seems to be going against his "Freedom is the Right of All Sentient Beings" schtick with the enslavement of Devastator. It is possible, however unlikely, that Optimus viewed this as an acceptable strategy given that Megatron had already forcibly turned the Constructicons evil in the first place. By turning them into Autobots again they'd only be undoing the damage already done. Kind of. * During the Autobots' initial battle with Devastator, when it cuts away to invisible Mirage snooping about the Decepticons' lair, he walks past Mixmaster, Scrapper, and Scavenger ... who presumably did not break off from Devastator during battle to watch a drill spin into the ground. * Though maintaining a consistent scale has [[Scale|never been a particularly important issue]] in Transformers fiction, this episode is a particularly notable offender, with Devastator's relative size fluctuating wildly: in some scenes Megatron appears to be almost half his height, whilst at other times the Autobots barely come up to the top of his ''foot''. Chip's scaling is also wildly variable: when Sunstreaker rescues him from the cave, he appears knee-high to the Autobots, but in the very next scene he has suddenly become as large as Wheeljack. * Devastator's transformations are unusually random and inconsistent in this episode: at one point Hook transforms into Devastator's head, whilst later it appears as though Scavenger transforms into Devastator's ''entire'' lower half, which seems to displace Hook and Long Haul from their normal positions and forgoes the need to involve Scrapper and Mixmaster altogether. ===Transformers references=== ===Real-world references=== ===Miscellaneous trivia=== * This episode is one of a trio including [[City of Steel]] and [[The Autobot Run]], that was animated by the Korean studio [[AKOM]]. They are distinguished by simplistic art, surprisingly high frame rates, some Hanna-Barbara-style animation shortcuts, and various character model oddities, such as Optimus Prime's white backpack (which would show up again in [[The Rebirth]]) and Chip Chase's blue jacket. * In an interview promoting the 2007 Transformers video game, Peter Cullen quoted the "Hang on to your dreams" quote above as one of his favorite lines of G1. If only he remembered the episode from which that quote came... <!--GRAMMAR!!! *In the part of the episode with Trailbreaker lunched out his hook so his teammates so they could trip devastor,trailbreaker told sunstreaker to catch but he didn't call him by his name,he called him hotshot.making some wonder if this where they got the idea for autobot soon to become the new leader for season 3? --> ===Keywords=== (''separate by commas and link each one so a page can be created for it if it does not already exist'') Return to The Core.
